Don Francisco vs. Godiva Coffee

A New Champion & A New Challenger

        Don Francisco’s Plantation House Blend was able to edge out 2 time workplace champion Dunkin Donuts Original Blend coffee last week in a battle that seemed to be neck-a-neck until down to the final cup. This week, Don Francisco will defend his title against Godiva Breakfast Blend coffee. I am very unsure about this particular match-up because the Godiva blend is bringing something a little different to the table, that no previous coffee competitor has brought: “Subtle chocolate flavor notes.” I can only hope that my coworkers will accept this flavor addition in good spirit, and not see it an unfair advantage or disadvantage. In my defense, I didn’t realize the Godiva blend had chocolate flavor in it until after I made the purchase. So… This might end up being a comparison of sailboats to bowling balls, but either way, there will be a contest and there will be a winner.

Dunkin' Donuts vs. Don Francisco Coffee

The First Title Defense Of Dunkin’ Donuts Coffee

        The first bout between two coffee heavyweights took place right here on this very blog, just about a week ago. The winner was Dunkin’ Donuts Original Blend, mightily crushing Starbucks Morning Joe. I’m glad that Starbucks lost right away, and I placed Starbucks in the first round for that very reason, to watch them lose. I didn’t know they would lose, but I figured they would either lose immediately or steadily topple opponents like the stupid New York Yankees. Sometimes, you just have to roll the dice, and I’m glad I did this time.

        The new challenger is Don Francisco’s Plantation Morning Blend. If I was made to pick the better tasting coffee, based on the the photo above, I think Don Francisco has the edge. It looks to me like Dunkin’ is cowering in front of Don.

Dunkin Donuts vs Starbucks Coffee

A World Heavyweight Coffee Title

        I don’t drink coffee, but my co-workers do, so my present to them for the week will be two bags of coffee grounds from two corporate mainstays in the morning coffee empire; Starbucks & Dunkin’ Donuts. I will listen to comments about the coffee and whichever is better received will be purchased next week, along with a new challenger.
